Can I get too big an onboard charger for my boat?

Question

Heartman

Found a real deal on a Minnkota 460 Onboard charger. 4 banks, 15 amps each. I've a starter battery for my 75hp, and three deepcycles for trolling motors. I'd like to say I fish alot, but that kind of comes and goes.

Will the a15 amp chargers adversely affect my batteries? The charger should start high and taper down to maintenance level...any thoughts on the idea of having too big a charger? Is there such a situation?

From the respones on the other post, as long as it's an automatic shut off, doesn't overheat the batteries, you should be fine.

Too big a charger? That is like a car that is too fast or having too much money.

The charger your refer to is made for your intended purpose.

Thanks for the comments - never can be too sure, especially when I'm doing the thinking...
